When I Pray
    #2235755 - 01/12/04 12:54 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Now I lay me down to sleep
I'm praying Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Somebody make a big mistake

I'm only just one little man
Just usin' up the air
Still I'm askin' anyway
Lord when I pray, please be there
Lord when I pray, please be there

Singin' om om my god, please be there

You know I'm just like all my kind
I got a weak and confused mind
When I feel a little pain
You know how I love to complain

But I try to be strong
I try hard to lift my share
I don't expect for nothing
But Lord when I pray, please be there

Now I sing for you - Todd Rundgren

I know a lot of people here don't believe in God. Maybe those lyrics weren't posted to invoke my restatement of my beliefs, and hell, we talked so much about God last week that I don't mind a break from imposing on all of you.

But...

Sometimes, things happen in life. And you tell yourself that it's karma, it's supposed to happen this way, you have to work on it, make it right, but sometimes things can be overwhelming, even when you know the right thing to do, and you take steps. And you can feel alone.

So I'm glad to have my beliefs, even if they appear to be naive. Things have a way of working out, and I guess I'm not completely alone.

I needed that tonight, MM. Very nice.

All the time.

And for those who couldn't know it, this thread was a joke.  I happened to be listening to Todd, again, what else?, and I thought, "Hey, that's an S&P song! :eek:"

I do not pray, at all, ever.

Amen

You're the best thing to happen to this forum since I stepped down as a moderator.

I'm going to call you on that one. I was reading S and P threads that were 2 to 3 years old last night and in one thread you spoke of prayer journals that you and Markos kept. You said they were proof that miracles happened.

Woah!

Nothing like a S&P historian!  :eek:

Yes, I kept prayer journals.  Yes, miracles happened.

That was then.  This is now.

Now I am bitter and not very thankful. 

You'll have that.

But I can be kind.  I even waited for your delete. :wink:

:heart:

But that's just because I like things tidy.

You'll have that too.

What is meant by kimosabe.

My internet research has thus revealed it means either "horse's ass" or "he who wants to know." I am guessing the latter?

Well, I would say thank you, but you added a :lol: at the end, so now I'm doing the Swami "scratch".

I think he was joking when he said that him stepping down as a moderator was a good thing. :smile:

Thank you for the discernment, Ed. 

In that case, thank you, MM!  :kiss:

It's the kimosabe/Lone Ranger bit.  I am Native American and I assumed, hopefully not too incorrectly, that you are not.

And yes, you hit the :lol: thing right on the head.

I was laughing because when I stepped down as a moderator many people thought it was a good thing while plenty of others didn't.

I thought/think it was/is GREAT!

One less job means mucho more fun!

And I am all about fun!
